Read each passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

 

Those who are familiar with it will tell you that Ludo, like human life itself, is a game both of chance and skill. You need skill in deciding how to make the most advantageous use of the figures, which turn up on the die when you cast it. Since each player has at least four alternative ways of using his figures, two players with equal luck may fare differently, depending on how cleverly each one uses his figures. The element of luck, again as in human life, plays a dominant role however. For no matter how skilful a player may be in using the figure he gets on the die, he has a slim chance of winning if he continually throws low figures. While a combination of ones and twos may be useful in checking the advance of one's opponents, it will not take one home fast enough to win. On the other hand, consistent throws of sixes and fives, with even the very minimum of skill will help a player to home all his four counters before any of the three other players, unless, of course, he has no idea of the game at all.

Read the following passage and answer question

 

In America, the first amendment to the Bill of ‘lights states, “Congress shall make no law.... abridging the freedom of speech.....” This amendment was passed to protect our right to express our opinions without fear. Yet, we must stop using the first amendment as a justification to say whatever we want, whenever we want. No speech is “free” when it has detrimental effect on the well-being of the others, the protection of our privacy, the safety of our borders, or the quality of our thinking.

While censorship is not the way of this land, we must take into account the effect of musical lyrics that influence young listeners. How often do we find ourselves singing a tune or repeating a phrase from a song instinctively, without stopping to ponder the meaning of the words? When these words are demeaning to any group of people or when they incite violence, we are unknowingly repeating phrases of hate. How long does it take until those phrases become worn into our patterns of thought and we find ourselves believing the words we mindlessly hummed?

Read the following passage and answer question

 

Insects can be classified into fourteen separate groupings, or orders. Butterflies and moths belong to the Lepidoptera order. Lepidoptera means “scale wings”, from the Greek words “lepido” which means “scale” and “ptera” which means “wings”.

 

Lepidoptera is one of the largest and most diverse insects’ orders. The only order with more different species is coleopteran, that of beetles. So far, scientists have observed approximately 150,000 different species of butterflies and moths. Each species is distinguished by the unique arrangement, colour, and pattern of its scales. Worldwide, there are about 28,000 butterfly species. The rest of the species comprising Lepidoptera are species of moths. Though butterflies and moths both have scaled wings, there are some important differences between them. Butterflies are distinguished by their brightly coloured wings. Moths’ wings are usually less bright. Butterflies are usually active during the day, while mothers are active at night. A butterfly’s antennae are swollen at the tip, while a moth’s antennae are feathery.
